whats the structure?
Short and sweet. Newspaper articles usually aren't too long, so you should get to the point. Make sure you cover everything and make it straight forward. As eee said, cover the 5 Ws within this constricted length. make sure a little background is given.
Address the who, what, where, when, and why of the event in as much detail as you can. Try to be completely unbiased.
Oh, should have a good heading that captures the reader.
My teacher told me to do that.
